HEART failure, the assessment and management of chest pain and treatments for common arrhythmia were among the key topics for discussion at the winter Cardiac Study Day at Mater Private Hospital Cork (Saturday 4th November).

More than 40 professionals from nursing, pharmacy and medicine attended. Special thanks to Joan Fahy, Best Practice, and her colleagues for facilitating this very beneficial day.
